The Nevada Department of Transportation made a draft of its Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan available for public comment on September 26 – a plan aimed at meeting passenger transportation needs in rural Nevada, including rural community needs for public transportation for work, medical appointments, entertainment and other venues.

The public comment period will remain open through October 22, according to Matt Bradly, a Nevada DOT transportation planner.

“Nevada is the nation’s seventh-largest state,” he explained in a statement.

“Our rural expanses mean that those who cannot transport themselves often must rely on others, such as family, friends or transit services, to reach employment, medical services, grocery stores and more,” Bradley said. “Prioritizing future transit improvements helps us jointly ensure that our fellow citizens can reach the services they need across Nevada.”

The agency added that is uses nearly $10 million in Federal Transit Administration funds to support local transit every year – offering millions of rides annually throughout Nevada for the disabled, the elderly, and those needing a ride to employment, medical treatment and more.
